Default Re: Post your final config for retail crysis here!

i tried a bunch of different tweaks on my system below, but found that the default medium settings give the best experience. At my monitors native res of 1920x1200, high is borderline unplayable when there is a lot going on onscreen, and very high is reserved for next gen hardware. I played the game until I reached the winter levels, and then decided to shelve the game until I have some better hardware to play it on. Unlike what others have said, I have found the retail runs quite a bit slower than the demo in the action heavy later levels. With all the other great games like COD4 and The Witcher, which run great on todays hardware, I thought there is little point trying to run a game in which my system apparently barely meets the requirements. If you have a beefy enough system and am running it at low resolution, I'm sure the game is a real visual treat, however.
System Specs:

Intel QX6700 @ 3.2 Ghz
Intel Bad Axe 2 Motherboard
8 GB Corsair Dominator 8500
MSI TwinFroz GTX 470
Soundblaster X-Fi
Silverstone Zeus 850 PSU
Dell FPW2405 LCD
Win 7 64 Bit
